Cut the biggest stalks of parsley first. Use scissors and take the whole stalk or the plants vigour will be lost. Parsley roots can also be used in cooking.

Flat leaved parsley is mostly used in cooking and bread making.
Curly leaved parsley is more often eaten raw or as a garnish.
It will grow in partial shade or full sun but likes alkaline, free draining but moist soil. Mulch if it tends to dry out. Keep weed free and feed once a month with tomato food.
Preserve leaves by freezing in a plastic bag. The frozen leaves are easily crushed for use. You can also dry them and store in an airtight jar
